Like the laundry that greets readers at the start of Anita Laheys astonishing debut -- hanging on clotheslines and bodied out in breezes -- the poems in this collection exist in a state of thrumming levitation. Laheys scampish play with idioms, her accelerated sense of traditional forms, and her omnivorous eye for fresh imagery lead to a poetry constantly streaming with surprises. These are musical, hyperstimulated, shape-shifting poems that draw on their subjects -- a high diver, World War I female munitions workers, a mangled shopping cart -- to conduct inspired, often irreverent, investigations into the marginal details of our world. The collection concludes with a long poem where Laheys gifts combine to create a large-spirited, unsentimental vision of a Maritime world free of fiddlers and romantic fishing tales: one instead brimming with honesty, humour, paradox, and grit.
The rough streets of the south Bronx. Home to countless gangs, pimps, and hustlers. A land where a gunshot is as common as a baby crying. A place where a day without a murder is an oddity. But this place is home to many, and it's where ten-year police veteran Michael Beckett has spent most of his time. Beckett has policing in his blood. He's from a long line of New York City cops, and knows no other life. That is, until he by chance lands a walk-on role on a popular network cop show. After that his vision changes. He thinks he can give up his days of chasing down the rapists, drug dealers, and murderers on the streets for a new life in front of the camera and with the young and hot writer on the show, Solana Ortiz. But when Solana's neighborhood in the south Bronx starts being the target of a string of arsons, Beckett must put aside the caviar dreams and do what he does best--police work. With the help of his mercurial partner, Vinnie D'Amato, Beckett unlocks a heinous scheme that reaches into the deepest pockets of power and greed in New York City, and into the path of an old friend that Beckett will do almost anything to forget. At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.

The Kids and GrampaT Here are 14 of the many stories written about The Kids and GrampaT by Jean Thibault Castagno, a relative to some and a friend to others. The settings are real and imaginary as are many of the events that unfold as one reads deeper into the tales of adventure. The author has always had a vivid imagination and a curious mind. These attributes, together with her desire to please others and to encourage their reading skills, combine nicely in tales of children and grownups playing and interacting together. Castagno also writes stories for adults that are meant to be inspiring and hope fulfilling. Castagno was raised on a farm in Coventry CT during World War II. Her series of stories about those years can be found on the Coventry CT website. She was the oldest of five children. Their mother worked very hard as can be expected when the father spends 12 hours a day at a war-related factory job 40 miles distant. The children were expected to help daily in tending to the animals, the gardens, and, every Fall, in harvesting the several acres of potatoes for sale to neighbors, friends and the local food stores. Castagno attended one room schools until 1943 when she and her 11 classmates transferred to either Manchester or Windham High Schools. Castagno has worked at many jobs: retail, insurance, and medical. On her fiftieth birthday in 1980, she decided to attend the nearby community college. She elected to study English because she thought she knew it, and Spanish because she didn’t. This led to a six year program of part-time studies and several honors degrees. She completed her courses in 1986 and taught at Oxford Academy, a private preparatory school for boys in Westbrook CT, until her retirement.

This monograph addresses many of the questions mental health professionals find themselves asking when faced with counseling minor clients. The monograph begins by examining how children and adolescents are viewed in the eyes of the law and discusses a minor's legal right to seek or refuse counseling services. Issues involving custody and competing interests for a child's welfare are addressed, as are special considerations for various work settings. The ethical duties of confidentiality and the legal ramifications of privileged communication as they relate to minor clients are examined, as are exceptions to these practices, including the reporting of child abuse and assisting suicidal and homicidal youth. Other topics that are addressed include considerations for counseling minors about sexual activity and its consequences, dual relationship issues for counselors of children and adolescents, and federal statutes that delineate the responsibilities of counselors in handling educational records. General answers to commonly asked questions are provided. A section containing discussion questions is included. It is noted that in these stressful times children and adolescents are in need of professional counseling services more than ever. A glossary and references are included. (ABL)
